Bruce Nunnally Posted September 21, 2008 Report Share Posted September 21, 2008 I am actually not a fan of this type of analysis, because I don't think it is 'apples to apples'. Lexus includes models that range from to top of GM's Pontiac or Chevrolet range through the Buick and Cadillac range and above. Likewise BMW includes roadsters and sedans that span the Corvette and Cadillac and Pontiac/Saturn roadster markets. If GM branded all luxury models under one roof, Buick + Corvette + Cadillac sales would top the chart. Here are some Luxury Vehicle sales totals for August 2008: August Sales Lexus Division: 29,281 BMW Division: 25,462 Mercedes Division: 18,520 Buick Division: 17,833 Cadillac Division: 15,405 Acura Division: 15,089 Infiniti Division: 11,076 Lincoln Division: 9,540 Audi: 6,406 Corvette: 4,242 Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky: 1814 Porsche: 1,404 Bentley: 178 In general CTS sales are booming and up 2/3, DTS sales are off 1/3, and STS or Escalade sales are 1/2 what they were last year. GM still sold more Cadillac Trucks (Escalade + SRX) last month than Corvettes, to keep some perspective. The XLR continues to plug along with 118 sales in August. The Lexus SC sold 187 by comparison, so not a great month for expensive luxury convertibles with the summer ending.
